Hundreds of screaming young thugs committing vandalism, public drunkenness, trespassing, destruction of private property, littering and disturbing the peace with traffic jams - just the annual “spirited” Halloween night on Kenneth Road. My husband and I stopped passing out candy three years ago (after our pumpkins were smashed, our decorations stolen and our driveway egged.) Now we turn off all lights and peer out through closed shutters at rowdy crowds milling up and down the length of the street.

Q. Halloween is upon us again, and with the annual traditions of trick-or-treating and pumpkin-carving in the air, many Christians are looking to alternate ways of celebrating the holiday. Because of its pagan origins and emphasis on death, celebrating Halloween is out of the question for many, but many are finding some use for it. JesusWeen, a creation of Pastor Paul Ade, aims to knock on doors come Oct. 31 and instead of shouting “trick-or-treat,” hand out Bibles to the occupants.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- A few shoppers were still scrambling for Halloween preparations Wednesday at Glendale Costumes, ending about three days of increased business. But despite a last-minute boost in customers, Glendale Costumes experienced much slower business this year than last. "Last year, from about Aug. 10 to Halloween, we were jamming every day," said Mario Di Gregorio, manager of Glendale Costumes. Di Gregorio added that last year was an unusually good year, while this year was an unusually bad year.

Karen S. Kim GRIFFITH PARK -- Halloween isn't just about costumes and candy this year. It's about hippos, according to the Los Angeles Zoo. Maggie and Otis, Griffith Park's resident hippopotamus amphibius, will be hosting a "Stomp and Chomp" to kick off Boo at the Zoo for Halloween. The strictly vegetarian animals will stomp and chomp on holiday pumpkins, apples, corn stalks and gourds. An emperor scorpion and a tarantula will also make a brief appearance during the event to celebrate the spooky holiday.

Tim Willert GLENDALE -- Trick-or-treaters making the rounds tonight will probably not get soaked after all. That's because a repeat of Tuesday's rain, the first measurable amount in nearly 200 days, is not part of today's Halloween forecast, said National Weather Service meteorologist Curt Kaplan. "Halloween will be fine," Kaplan said. "No rain is expected, and it will be dry for the rest of the week." Today's forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of 72 degrees and a low of 53, he said.

Ben Godar Halloween is a night of playful mischief, but local law-enforcement officials said sometimes that mischief can turn dangerous. Luckily, by following common-sense guidelines, Beggar's Night can remain fun. While most Halloween dangers are minor, Officer Leticia Chang of the Glendale Police Department said it is not uncommon for someone to use their disguise to commit a robbery. "It can be difficult to determine who committed a robbery because they blend into the crowd," Chang said.

An effort by Kenneth Road residents to wrestle back their neighborhood from Halloween crowds and vandalism this year appears to have paid off. For three years Lucy Brand closed the shutters to her home on Kenneth Road and stopped handing out candy on Halloween after fights broke out in her yard, pumpkins were smashed and decorations were damaged. But on Wednesday night, Brand and her husband opened their doors once again to trick-or-treaters as for the first time, Glendale police guarded a stretch of road to curtail vandalism at the popular Halloween spot that attracts thousands of revelers.

     If you walked through the halls of Rosemont Middle School on Oct. 31, you may see few faces you recognize.      That is because Halloween transformed the school into a world of make-believe where cartoon characters, past presidents, Olympic teams, strange monsters, cowboys, indians and boxes of crayons replace the usual staff and student body.      During snack in the morning, students, teachers, and support staff assembled in the school’s amphitheatre where recognition was given to favorites in categories such as scariest, funniest, most original and best group in an informal contest judged by student applause.

Halloween arrived early at Balboa Elementary School, with students pouring into the kindergarten playground in their costumes Monday during the school’s Pumpkin Patch event, a PTA fundraiser that’s in its fifth year. Elementary school students dressed as mermaids, princesses, pirates and superheroes trolled the playground, stopping to play beanbag-throwing games or pick up a piece of pizza in exchange for a few tickets. Despite modest prices like the 50 cents it cost to play a game, the homegrown Halloween celebration brought in about $3,000 last year, said Lorna Lopez, PTA secretary at Balboa.

Halloween pop-up shops are haunting Glendale again, packing in customers for superhero suits, fake blood and more, but the city's real estate resurgence means there are fewer locations for the temporary businesses. Two years ago, Glendale-based Halloween Time Superstore had four locations in the city, manager Patrick Abe said Thursday, but this year and last, that's down to one on Central Avenue. “There's lots of new construction [in Glendale], and there's just not the same amount of available space,” Abe said.

This is a good week to be Cinema Secrets, the Burbank institution that has been keeping people in makeup since 1984. On Saturday, there will be lines of Halloween celebrants waiting to pay hundreds of dollars to the professional makeup artists on hand to turn them into wizards, zombies, aliens, or even those most frightening of all characters, politicians. Whether you're in the market to look like one of the dudes from "Twilight," a killer clown or Miley Cyrus, the folks at Cinema Secrets can make it happen.

A mountain lion was spotted strolling near a northwest hillside neighborhood in Glendale Thursday night, police said. A resident saw the lion at about 11 p.m. moving north on Larco Way, where it briefly stopped to stare at him and then meandered away, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz. Animal control officers with the Pasadena Humane Society, which serves Glendale, were notified about the sighting and will be distributing fliers in the neighborhood, advising residents what to do if they see a mountain lion, said spokeswoman Ricky Whitman.

At the end of its initial run, back in 1978, John Carpenter's “Halloween” became the most profitable film of all time - not in absolute dollars, but in terms of return on investment. Its domestic gross was more than 100 times its cost. It was also the first of an enduring triumvirate of slasher franchises - the others being “Friday the 13th” and “A Nightmare on Elm St.” It employed every shock trick in the book, sometimes improving them, and created at least one new trick - the long POV tracking shot.

On behalf of our community, I would like to thank our men and women of the Glendale Police Department for the way they handled the people on Kenneth Road on Halloween night. With very limited resources, the officers showed their professionalism and method of operation in controlling the teenagers and sometimes adults acting like teenagers on Kenneth Road I live near Kenneth Road and every year I get to see the insanity that takes place when people hide behind a mask. Sometimes, I think we need to have an age limit on who can go out for trick-or-treating.

It didn't feel like Halloween this year. Kenneth Village did not host a Fall Festival. We've lived in Glendale for almost 12 years now and have never missed this wonderful family event. But this year, it vanished. The costumes, bouncers, treats, bands, and school drill teams were nowhere to be found. What a loss for our neighborhood. I realize that funds from the city did not come through. But next year, if the festival is once again on the block, I hope the Kenneth Village merchants will organize a fundraiser so that we can work together to bring back a Glendale tradition.

There wasn't much in the way of trick-or-treating (I'm sure most of us would rather work be a trick) in downtown Glendale Wednesday morning, but that didn't keep some from going to work incognito -- Halloween-style. From the “How the heck is he going to work in that?” to the more practical, check out the photo gallery for a rundown of some costumes spotted in downtown Glendale Wednesday morning. Also, here's a look below at what some residents have already started unveiling in terms of their Halloween costume picks.

It's that time of year again, and no, we're not talking about Halloween. A more than 100-foot-tall white fir Christmas tree rolled into the Americana at Brand early Tuesday morning -- crane at the ready to hoist it into place a day before even Halloween has had its moment on the calendar. The tree, which hails from Mt. Shasta, will be decorated in the coming weeks with 10,000 lights and 15,000 ornaments, according to Caruso Affiliated, which owns the Americana. The company's other big L.A. mall, The Grove, got its similarly-sized Christmas tree last week.
